Built for the memorial of Yuku destruction fish and Mizuumishin Ritsuko princess

Himekannon

姫観音

In 1945, a national policy introduced the strongly acidic water of Tamagawa into Lake Tazawa to make it a reservoir dam, and many fish in Lake Tazawa died. For the memorial service of the perishing fish and the princess Tatsuko, the priests of the surrounding temples took the lead in soliciting and building the fortune. The statue stands towards the lake.
